The first mission statement I wrote, over 15 years ago, stated that I would go anywhere I wanted to go, And not rely, question, or travel for the sake of anybody else but myself. We often travel to make other people happy, and we find we need to go home, because the person we needed to make happy, is ourselves. I knew when I came here this was a dangerous country the Dominican Republic is a broken place. yes there is good in any country, and I really went to Haiti, with the hope of leaving from Santiago airport in Dominican Republic on a cheaper flight. I only had to live here for 24 days. I always make the choices I make and I take responsibility for the Choices I make, I rely on nobody else's decisions but my own.

DR, Why, You Said You Never Return to Dominican Republic

Hi Andy, I appreciate your honesty concerning this subject. There is one variable you did not mention and that is age. I like you was a very adventurous person and visited places and did things that were dangerous when I was young. I traveled to Israel in 2008 and after I arrived, Jerusalem was in a state of siege because several students were murdered. I was 56 years old and notice I had a stress and an uneasiness I never experienced before in my life, through I had been in simular situations. I had to be careful who I talked to or said because of the situation. Later, I determined that my age was a factor and I will never visited a dangerous, crime ridden or war like country again and will never visit a dangerous, crime ridden city in the USA. At this point in my life, I do not want unnecessary injuries that I can prevent.
Andrew fix this field I cannot submit from a smartphone. It is embarrassing. Andy
